Question about Briggs & Stratton Power Products 5,550 Watt Portable Generator #30241
I have a white wire - approx. 5'' - hanging from the engine housing behind the choke and near the carburetor. The bitter end is not attached to anything. There is what looks like a **** connector on the end of the wire. I cannot figure out where it goes. I think I knocked it loose while cleaning the generator.
As I look forward from the pull string (aft end) to the forward end (electrical outlets) this wire coming out of the engine on the port side just forward of the shield separating the choke lever from the carburetor.
This 11 hp engine briggs and strattin 256412-1153-e1 pull start engine is powering a homelite lr5500 pull start generator
You and I have the exact same problem on the same exact gen set. I believe it connect to the red on off switch, right side front. I will investigate on mine as it is hanging loose as well and wont start. Also, anyone know which model starter will fit these engines?

Please connect it to earth(chassis) and look if it is stil sparking. i think it is the wire to stop the gen. it used to be fit behind the handle to start and stop please let me know, thanks.
